Katrin's Favorite Gear
2015 & 2016 Women’s CrossFit Games Champion
For Rogue athlete and two-time “Fittest Woman on Earth” Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir, reaching her ultimate goal was as much about mental determination as physical ability. By the age of 20, the native of Reykjavik, Iceland, had already made two promising appearances at the Reebok CrossFit Games. In 2014, however, she narrowly missed qualifying for the event after a sixth place finish in the Europe Regional. Turning that disappointment into motivation, Katrin took her training to another level in 2015, and arrived back at the CrossFit Games with a new confidence to match. She would proceed to hold her own against fierce competition all weekend, finally vaulting herself to the top of the podium with a first place finish in the very last event of the Games—Pedal to the Medal 2.
In 2016, she left any doubt behind as to her place atop the sport, successfully defending her crown and joining her countrywoman Annie Thorisdottir as the only women to win consecutive CrossFit Games titles.
Davidsdottir is a lifelong athlete who competed in track and field and trained for 10 years as a gymnast before entering the CrossFit world in 2011 at the age of 18. She currently makes her home in Natick, Massachusetts.
